Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church, also known as the Protestant Episcopal Church in the U.S.A., traces its heritage to the start of Christianity. The church is based in New York, operates in 16 countries and territories outside the U.S., and is led by a Presiding Bishop.

Early settlers and missionaries from England established the church in the U.S., and it was originally an outpost of the Church of England. After the Revolutionary War, the ties were severed and the American church became independent.​

Anglican Communion - Primates

The Anglican Communion is a worldwide association of churches that generally agree with the Church of England about essential doctrine. National and regional Anglican churches, including the Episcopal Church, are part of the communion.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, who heads the Church of England, has a place of honor over other archbishops within the communion. He is considered first among equals, though he has no formal governing authority.
